In the end it comes down to filling the criteria of judging that will make the difference. Two jumps and two waves can actually be alot to fill in really well sometimes. You can have amazing jumps and struggle to find set waves or you can focus on waves then get unlucky going back and forth not finding a good ramp. So I think flow and rhythm with the ocean and being adaptable is pretty important. I never feel graduated from the school of windsurfing there’s always something to improve on. Windsurfing is diamonds in the sand, there’s moments of glory that don’t come easy but that’s why it’s so addicting. It’s one of the hardest sports in the world and one of the most misunderstood at the same time.
